The different stages of the web design process from start to finish.

 

How the web design process works

 

It is in your best interest to be involved in the web design process & by maintaining regular contact with me throughout the development of your website. Looking at the phases of the web design process shown below should give you a better understanding of what can be expected at each stage of the development of your website.

  • STEP 1

    Free Consultation

    The initial meeting gives me an opportunity to learn about your business & the scope of your website project so that I can get a good grasp of your business needs. Please allow 45min to 1 hour, a phone meeting can be arranged if you can't meet in person. I can also assist with domain registration and hosting.

    Planning

    Using the information gathered from our intitial meeting, it is time to put together a plan for your web site. This is when your page structure is developed. Typically this would include home page, about, service pages and other pages as required, please see my article on common website pages you need

    Things you need to provide

    You will need to provide me with any images, existing logo and of course your text content. Dropbox is a great way to get your content to me particularly images, as it supports large file uploads.

    Web Design Phase

    I prefer to move into the web browser as quickly as possible, this means I delve right into the coding of your site. Based on the plan, I start working on content layout, navigation & other elements. The framework I use allows me to do this very efficiently.

     

  • STEP 5

    Website Launch & Optimisation

    Upon website completion it will be uploaded to your web host where it can be accessed under your domain name. Optimisation of your website pages is actually done from beginning to end. SEO techniques are built into every website I build to help boost your sites visibility in Google search.
